Unless your aircraft has a particular limitation that demands one method or the other, it’s a fruitless discussion.
The key to successful crosswind landings is getting your mind outside the cockpit and away from mechanical ‘push this lever’ or ‘pull that one’ thinking.
Concentrate on holding the centerline during final approach, and immediately correct the slightest deviations on landing. As long as you’re continuously tracking the centerline, your hands and feet will naturally do the right things.
Don’t worry about style.
Just follow the stripe.
